Look Your Best for the Holidays With a Tummy Tuck
Autumn is a popular time of year, typically due to the beautiful fall colors, cooler temperatures, and opportunity to visit friends and family. This is also an excellent season to consider cosmetic enhancement, as many individuals receive time off from work and desire to look their best for special events. Tummy tuck surgery, also called abdominoplasty, is one of the most commonly performed procedures during this time. Designed to reduce excess skin, tighten underlying muscles, and enhance the contour of the body, a tummy tuck from one of our skilled plastic surgeons, Dr. Jerome Liu and Dr. Tom Liu, can help create that firm, youthful appearance many wish for.
Typically performed on women who have had children and individuals who have lost a dramatic amount of weight, abdominoplasty addresses the loose, inelastic skin that can often result from pregnancy or weight loss but may also affect others due to genetic predisposition. In many cases, liposuction may be added to the procedure to assist in eliminating stubborn fat deposits and further contour the body. A tummy tuck can also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks located low on the abdomen. These unwanted conditions—inelastic skin, stubborn pockets of fat, and stretch marks—usually cannot be corrected with diet and exercise alone.
There are many benefits to tummy tuck surgery for qualified candidates. This procedure typically requires at least a week of recovery, which is part of the reason our patients often opt to undergo treatment during the holidays. Fall and winter are excellent times to relax, pamper oneself, and enhance one’s appearance, and individuals can utilize this chance to return to normal activities and work after the holidays looking and feeling both beautiful and confident.
